The Explorer (silk-screen print 1986)

Profile of a mauve woman in a wheelchair sitting atop a grey elephant. The elephant is walking towards the left of frame; the woman is looking in the opposite direction. One hand is raised in a waving gesture, the other rests gently on the elephant’s neck. A sun shines out with vibrant red and white spiralling rays against a sky of bright orange merging and blending with a soft red ground. On the right of frame, a plant with almond-shaped leaves in red and blue is positioned so that its outer edge overlaps the white frame. On the other side, a plant with red and blue disc-shaped flowers is positioned in a similar way.
